Someone just won an auction for a very rare Waterman nurse’s pen.
The price paid was high, but this is the only example of the button on the cap that I’ve ever seen in this condition.
Waterman has made numerous pens like this in various sets like this over an extended period of time. Usually they are not particularly valuable.
I have not been able to find much catalog evidence except for the Nightingale set. And thus I have to rely on pictures of actual pens usually mentioned (often in passing) in various books or the Internet, or the pens themselves. I have been doing this for years.
However, just when I get arrogant and think I have seen all the varieties, a new one pops up.
I am trying to do a website on pens for doctors and nurses instead of a book, and would very much appreciate pictures of this pen set that I could put on the website with the permission of the photographer.
Could the lucky person who won this auction please get in contact with me and please volunteer pictures.
